Poor lad

It's nice that people like you actually "bother" to try and fix those dogs - so many places would dust put them down
It's so hard when they've grown up feral like that - was he kept in a house all shut in or outside?
Lots of patience and perseverance may get him there eventually - but yeah it's going to take lots of time. At what stage would he be allowed to go home with you?

Out in the desert and allowed to roam as a pack, he has never been inside.
He would have to be social enough so that he was not a danger when my adult children visit, and he would have to be able to get along with my pack. I have introduced him to one of my daughters and her boyfriend. They fed him treats but he was very spooked. At Safe Haven he is learning to trust people. We all bring him treats and good things. He is slowly learning not to run away and be afraid.. They also have a variety of dogs in and out. Right now he is getting more social interaction that he would be able to get at my house. When he is ready for indoor training like potty training and stuff then I would like to have him.

I should also mention they have people with a lot more training and experience than I have who would have to say he was ready to come live in a home.
